Chiropractic care is all about the relationship between the spine and the nervous system, the master controller of all living cells, tissues and organs; it orchestrates and coordinates all cellular function. The spinal column encases the nervous system (spinal cord and nerve roots) and is responsible for its protection.

Because of this intimate relationship, biomechanical and structural problems in the spinal column can irritate parts of the enclosed nervous system.  When tissue injuries occur due to accidents, falls, stress or overexertion, the function of the nervous system is negatively impacted, as is cellular, tissue and organ function throughout the body.  Tissue injuries can occur by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive movements, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor posture for extended period of time.  Regardless how it occurs, the injured tissues undergo both physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain and diminished function.  Left unresolved, this can make you more susceptible to chronic issues. Chiropractic adjustment of the affected joint and tissues can help to restore mobility, which alleviates pain and muscle tightness to allow tissues to heal.

In short, because the body’s innate recuperative powers are affected by and integrated through the nervous system, correcting spinal abnormalities which irritate the nervous system can lead to a number of favorable results in patients suffering various, seemingly non-spinal-related health symptoms and conditions.

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the spine and other joints of the body and their connection to the nervous system.  The word “chiropractic” means “to be done by hand.”  Doctors of Chiropractic – also known as chiropractors or chiropractic doctor  – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Using a broad range of diagnostic skills, chiropractors are trained to recommend therapeutic, rehabilitative exercises, as well as provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. 

Chiropractic services are used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back and/or neck pain, pain in the arm or leg, and headaches.  According to the Association of Chiropractic Colleges, chiropractic “emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery.  The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationships between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system), and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.”

At Agasar Family WellCare at Inner Spa, we use adjustments by hand and/or instrument to restore joint function and support the nervous system in order for patients to maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery.  It is estimated that 50 million Americans seek chiropractic care each year.

A chiropractor is a primary care doctor who specializes in spinal health and well-being, focusing on prevention, diagnosis and conservative care of spine-related disorders and other painful joint issues.  Chiropractors use many specialized techniques to identify and treat spinal abnormalities and optimize overall health.  Along with adjustments, chiropractors also provide soft-tissue therapies, lifestyle modification recommendations, fitness coaching and therapies, and dietary and nutritional advice.

The chiropractors at Agasar Family WellCare at Inner Spa truly believe in what they to, and work with patients one-on-one to create a wellcare plan that is geared toward their health needs and goals.  Our chiropractors are dedicated to helping you find your best self.

 

Chiropractic care is general associated with treatment of back and neck ailments.  While this may be a primary reason to seek chiropractic care, it is not the only reason.  Chiropractic care can relieve back and neck pain quickly, it is true, but the bigger picture is about restoring and optimizing your health.

At Agasar Family WellCare at Inner Spa, chiropractic care is part of our lifestyle.  We believe that the body can heal itself when given the tools to do so, and chiropractic care is one of the best ways to correct and provide significant long-term benefits over simply treating symptoms.

The most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors is called a spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment.  Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance.  This adjustment is a very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility. 

Chiropractic adjustments rarely cause discomfort.  However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following a treatment (as with any form of exercise), which usually resolves itself within 12 to 48 hours.

The chiropractors at Agasar Family WellCare at Inner Spa are well-trained and experienced in various types of chiropractic adjustments.  At each visit, they will check-in with you regarding your current state of well-being and provide the adjustment they deem necessary for your current condition. Rest assured, you are in good hands that care about you and your wellcare.

How Chiropractic Differs

Chiropractors believe in the body’s ability to heal itself; this is the significant and important difference between chiropractic and medical doctors.  Chiropractors take a holistic approach to care which includes identifying and correcting the root problem or cause of an issue rather than focusing on simply treating the symptoms of the condition.  Chiropractors believe that by correcting the root problem and not just the symptom will bring about significant long-term benefits for optimizing health.

Agasar Family WellCare at Inner Spa is all about healing from the inside out.  We believe that taking care of the body from the inside out will enable you to function better and live the lifestyle you deserve. Every service offered is geared toward you and your wellcare goals.  Our holistic approach is all about the whole person, not just the symptoms you are experiencing when you come to visit.

Chiropractic Collaboration

Chiropractic care to treat conditions such as lower back pain may be the primary method of treatment. However, when other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may be a complement to medical treatment of a musculoskeletal condition.  Chiropractors may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging, and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic care is appropriate, and will readily refer patients to the appropriate healthcare provider when it is not suitable based on the patient’s condition; such referrals may occur when the chiropractor feels a condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health and wellcare team. Dr. Jerry has developed a strong relationship with other medical providers to assist in getting the best results possible.

Wellcare is not just part of our name, it is the way we treat every patient who comes to us.  At Agasar Family WellCare, we are dedicated to helping you find the wellness journey that is right for you so you can live your best life. 

Posture Management

Good posture plays an important role in your overall health and wellness.

When your mother said, “Sit up straight” or “Don’t slouch,” she was really saying she wanted you to have good health.  You most likely complied, but may not have understood the importance of the simple act of standing or sitting straight.

Good posture basically refers to the body’s alignment and positioning with respect to the forces of gravity.  It doesn’t matter what you are doing, standing, sitting or lying down, gravity exerts force on your joints, ligaments and muscles.  Good posture disturbs the force of gravity through the body so no one structure within is overstressed.

In today’s society, people sit for long periods of time and have their heads down because of texting and looking down at devices such as cell phones, tablets, and computers, just two of the many reasons people develop poor posture.  This can lead spinal strain or misalignment which can lead to many conditions, including fatigue, inflammation and pain throughout the body.

As part of our chiropractic care, we help you understand the purpose and importance of proper posture.  Being aware of good posture and practicing it in between adjustments is the first step to reducing stress and strain on your spine, ligaments and muscles can help you live a more healthy, vibrant life.

Posture management is done through various exercised designed to strengthen the core as well as muscles in the neck, shoulders, back, and legs.  They are easy to do, and are demonstrated by our staff in person and on video.  By incorporating posture management into your lifestyle, you can help your body stay strong so you can live the life you want and deserve.
